Abstract (100-x) SiO2–x SnO2 (x from 12 to 60 mol%) glass–ceramic thin films have been prepared by the sol–gel processing method, obtaining high SnO2 concentrations (up to 60 mol%) for the first time. Using an appropriate thermal process, SnO2 nanocrystals were nucleated in the glassy silica matrix, providing optical waveguides for x ⩽ 30 mol%. M-line measurements were used to determine the thickness and refractive index of each film. Raman and FTIR spectroscopies, in situ high-temperature XRD… CONTINUE READING
